The growth, structure, and magnetic properties of thin epitaxial films of GdMnO3 multiferroics

The growth, structure, and magnetic properties of thin epitaxial films of GdMnO3 multiferroics Thin epitaxial gadolinium manganite (GdMnO3) films were manufactured on single-crystal substrates of neodymium gallate (001) (NdGaO3) and strontium titanate (001) (SrTiO3) by the high-frequency magnetron sputtering method.

Abstract

Thin epitaxial gadolinium manganite (GdMnO3) films were manufactured on single-crystal substrates of neodymium gallate (001) (NdGaO3) and strontium titanate (001) (SrTiO3) by the high-frequency magnetron sputtering method. The RBS analysis demonstrated that the thickness of the obtained films was ∼100 nm and the chemical composition corresponded to the stated stoichiometry. It was established by the X-ray diffraction analysis of the structure and phase composition of the obtained films that all films were single-phase but, depending on the temperature of the substrate during sputtering they have one or several types of orientations relative to the substrate. The X-ray diffraction analysis and high-resolution electron microscopy data on gadolinium manganite films on neodymium gallate substrates were verified. Features pointing to phase transitions in GdMnO3 that were earlier discovered on bulk single-crystal samples were found in the temperature dependence of the magnetic susceptibility.
